Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Steam through scenic Lancaster County aboard America’s oldest operating railroad, where the first thing you can expect is an authentic steam railroad experience! Strasburg Rail Road has five working steam locomotives and a fleet of twenty passenger cars, including First Class, Dining, Coach, and Open Air, all beautifully restored and carefully maintained by a world-class staff. Our regular steam train excursion provides a 45-minute roundtrip through the countryside, while an audio commentary highlights interesting facts and history about the railroad and surrounding area. More than 2,500 acres of farmland are visible from the train, much of which is farmed by our Amish neighbors. The Strasburg Rail Road invites you to enjoy a steam train ride, stop for a picnic, enjoy railroad activities at the station, browse unique shops, or indulge yourself aboard First Class! Special seasonal adventures include Day Out With Thomas, Christmas Trains, Wine & Cheese events, and more!

I can't tell you how much fun my husband and I had with our 2 year old grandson on the Easter train. There was additional things there Harryson enjoyed also that we didn't expect. Will definitely make a return trip.

It was an excellent trip. Alittle chilly for the egg hunt but overall very satisfied. It was my daughter's first time on a train and she loved it.

We were in town with our two grandsons, 8 & 5. What little boy doesn't like trains? They loved the entire experience, especially getting a turn to sit in the cab! Folks at Strasburg Rail Road could not have been nicer or more helpful. We will return.

The train runs about 1/2 mile down the track ,sits there for 10 minutes and then runs back.There is no tour of the countryside like it advertises.I thought it was very expensive for what you got.My 5 year old granddaughter seemed to like the experience but wasn't impressed with the ride.If your expecting a train ride like I was ,well,not so much.There are a couple little shops for souveniers.but that's about it.
